Dhonielle Clayton continues to weave a masterful web ensnaring my attention and my appreciation. The world of Orléans she has built has quickly become one that I long to return to.
Birdie and Daniel are absolutely adorable and I enjoyed reading their story. *SWOON ALERT*
The novel can be seen of a critique of this societal shift to praising the superficial. However, it does so in a light way: This was a fun and easy read.
I love a good dystopian fiction novel, but mix in some super powers and this anime loving girl is in her bookish happy place!
This book itself is my love letter - to you, to black women, to women and to all those who understand the beauty that comes through struggle and the benefit of doing their own work to heal, to understand, to grow, and most importantly, to love more fully.
The intricacy of the world building gave me goosebumps. I was able to recreate the Inuit world in my mind so easily because of the detail the book entailed.
Like many others, I had no idea this was a book series until it came out on Netflix. I, of course, binge watched it and immediately had to read the books.
